WRITING PROMPT: Write a scene where a character confronts one of your worst fears. THE FEAR: I chose the fear of not amounting to anything. The rain wouldn’t stop pouring down that day.

An Intimate Longing…

WRITING PROMPT: Write about something you want so badly. What is it? How does it feel? Good emotionally connected sex with a person I feel completely safe with, at home in, and who’s skin electrifies mine.  And not just the sex, but the short-hand familiarity that comes from years in each others mind caverns and […]

My Morning Inner Narrative

I’m too tired to chant today.  But it makes you feel better Yea but you taught a night class, and sleep makes you feel better.  Just chant Its fine if you don’t chant.

She claims to […]

My Life is My Story

As a writer, a blogger, I live life exposed; so I don’t have the luxury of regretting any of my choices.  Hopefully, in the din of my dramas and delusions, I tell myself, I can transform my latest blunder into a blog post; my latest lapse in judgement into lasting impact for someone else.  So, […]

The Reason For Rain

A quarter of a century has gone by for me, and sitting on a plane on the way to London for the wedding of an old friend all I can seem to do is check out the hot guy waiting to use the men’s room five cramped rows in front of me.  There was a […]
